Maturing your Platform Engineering initiative:
Nicki Watt, CEO/CTO

Kubernetes (K8s) tends to be one of the first tools reached for when building platforms and supporting platform engineering initiatives. But success relies on much more than just making K8s easier for developers to consume. Working out how to balance people, process, policy, and technology within a unique organisational context is key to uncovering a feasible and sustainable path forward.

Nicki's talk explores how the CNCF platform maturity model can be used as part of a toolbox to help guide organisations through such journeys.

Nicki begins by identifying a few common scenarios organisations find themselves starting in, and map this onto the model. Then, leveraging our experience of having partnered with different organisations on their platform engineering journeys, she plots out a few paths and options which can help organisations practically move towards achieving desired business outcomes.
